Danville Neighborhood
Leadership Conference

How it Began

Since 2019, the Danville Neighborhood Leadership Conference is an annual conference that provides practical, current information and resources to build the capacity and confidence of Danville’s resident leaders to make positive changes in their neighborhoods.  It also celebrates projects completed and the accomplishments of community leaders. The conference is organized by the DNDC in partnership with the City of Danville and the Danville Regional Foundation Opportunity Neighborhoods initiative.  Budding and experienced neighborhood leaders of all ages are invited to network, learn and see what is happening in other Danville neighborhoods.

Its Purpose

Danville’s quality of life and economic future depend on Danville’s neighborhoods.  Neighborhoods either invite or deter, nurture or neglect, thrive or deteriorate.  Disinvestment in housing and crime are among the primary culprits of neighborhood blight and abandonment.  However, when residents come together and mobilize to address issues that threaten their quality of life, positive changes occur, and improvements are sustained.  The work of the Westmoreland Neighborhood Organization, Friends of the Old West End and Cardinal Village Neighborhood Watch are shining examples of this.  

Get Involved

The Danville Neighborhood Leadership Conference is free for everyone to join. DNDC, the City of Danville, and the Danville Regional Foundation Opportunity Neighborhoods Initiative invite existing and budding neighborhood leaders and individuals of all ages to attend for information and tools to make neighborhood improvement efforts more effective!
